Tribes A Dozen Bread Review and Giveaway

I was sent the above 3 boxes of Tribes A Dozen Voila! Hallah Bread to review. I was not compensated in any other way.
"Tribes-A-Dozen’s Voilà! Hallah is an all-natural, Kosher line of traditional bread mixes created especially for busy home bakers." That is the tag line from their about page.  I really want to share their Mission Statement as well. Here it is:
"Tribes-A-Dozen offers a diverse line of high-quality, natural baking mixes so that even our busiest follower could create bread with the taste, aroma, and quality expected of a bread made from scratch.
WE SEE bread-baking as an expression of life's simplest joys, which Tribes-A-Dozen aims to spread by rekindling the tradition of baking bread at home.
WE BELIEVE that we nourish and share our humanity through the baking and breaking of bread and that no one would go hungry if every person mastered the basics of bread-baking.
WE RESOLVE to forge connections to all people and to the earth that are as straightforward and as warm as a freshly-baked loaf of bread." (Taken off their page.)

Their all natural mixes, I CAN PRONOUNCE THE INGREDIENTS!, are manufactured at a facility that is committed to sustainable production practices that include use of renewable wind and solar energy and a recycling process able to reduce, reuse, and recycle 90% of all production! That is such a plus!

What is Hallah? Its all natural, kosher hallah (or challah bread) – – the classic egg bread – – also referred to as barches, brioche, kalács, osterbrot, or, simply, twisted bread. Hallah has deep spiritual meaning in the Jewish faith, but traditional egg bread is enjoyed in many cultures and embraced by Kosher and non-Kosher households.

If you cant find the mixes at your local store, you can find where to get them HERE.

I must say, I was very impressed with not only their website but they are very nice to work with! I was also very happy with the mixes I was sent. All 3 were delicious! And very easy to make! My daughter helped and I don't normally let her because I usually bake complicated. The pictures below are the Egg Bread Mix as Traditional. Very yummy!!

The basics of what you need are in the box. The flour mix and the yeast.

You don't need anything special like a bread maker or bread tongs with your mixer to make it! You an use a bowl and wooden spoon to mix by hand. We did it!

When the first rise is done, roll out 3 equal balls of dough. Roll the balls into 3 12 inch lines and braid. If you don't want to braid, just put the balls into a loaf pan side by side. Then let the 2nd rise happen.

During baking, I did keep checking it and had to take it earlier than the box said by about 7 min. Still came out a bit darker than I wanted but OMY it was yummy. All the kids ate some! .
Here's the fun part! Tribes A Dozen is offering the same 3 mixes that they sent to me, to one lucky person! They will ship the 3 mixes to the winner of the giveaway. Good luck!
